Music Masters Camps offer a highly interactive experience, bridging the gap between artist and audience. The camps provide a unique opportunity for participants and world-class artists to meet and collaborate in an inspired and creative atmosphere at this pastoral, one hundred acre mountain resort, "dedicated to the celebration of music and the arts in nature".

The host artist creates the format, agenda and curriculum. Some camps have an "academic" feel, incorporating elements of music theory, master classes and instrumental ensembles while others are more casual with a social and festival oriented atmosphere. All Music Masters Camps provide an extremely high quality musical experience, enhanced by the presence of talented "counselors", including band members, associated musicians, special guests and industry professionals.

Ultimately, the common thread through the Music Masters Camps experience is the integration of academic, instructional and social elements, as well as personal interface with the artists- not only at forums, panels, classes, and jam sessions, but also at breakfast, lunch and dinner and throughout evening activities.

Whether you are a musician or an enthusiastic fan, Music Masters Camps are specifically designed to provide an inspirational and interactive experience, offering the opportunity to truly take a step "Beyond Backstage."

Music Masters Camps are complete with superb dining, comfortable country inn accommodations, and camping options.

Full Moon Resort

Located one half hour west of Woodstock, NY, is a year-round mountain resort in the heart of the “Forever Wild” Catskill Forest Preserve. Dedicated to the celebration of music and art in nature, this one hundred-acre wonderland of mountains, fields, and streams is a world of its own.

Accommodations

Accommodations are charming in their simplicity, with guest rooms available in a variety of lodges – some in a simple B&B style with shared hallway baths and others with a more traditional country inn style with private bath.

Dining

Lovingly prepared, fresh, healthy cuisine served by a friendly, professional staff is the trademark of Full Moon Catering. The menus offer a full range of possibilities – hot buffet breakfasts and lunches, down-home country barbecues and formal gourmet dinners. Fresh, natural ingredients (often organic) are the common thread throughout.

Wi-Fi, cable television and complimentary phone service are all available at the Inn (please bring a phone card for international calls). Please Note: Cell phone reception is not reliable at Full Moon Resort or in Big Indian.

Visit the Full Moon Resort Website for more details.


Roots Rock Revival features master classes, jam sessions, open rehearsals and more. Whether you’re a fan or musician, you’ll get an intimate look at the Allman Brothers Band and the music that formed the foundation of Rock ‘n Roll.
